While this is not a fitness blog, it goes without saying that the career industry has shifted the fitness market- making our days at our computer longer, easier to get takeout and eat unhealthy, and then more ways to track heartbeat and workout and repeat the whole cycle. That being said, fitness is more than just biking- it also includes eating healthy and changing your lifestyle. The goal is to improve your mental and physical health to enhance your life. Nothing like a glоwing, radiant, роѕitivе attitude, after all! Colleagues will nоtiсе. Bоѕѕеѕ will notice. Your career will imрrоvе. Your lifе will improve!
Exercise can help sharpen your memory, keeping you on your toes at work.
Exercise can increase the size of the hippocampus, according to a study by the NIH, the part of the brain tied to memory and emotion, which can not only improve your memory even into late adulthood, but can help improve your ability to learn new things. This means everything from being a proactive team player, taking the time to learn the company’s history, and learning how to sustain and build work relationships!
Exercise also improves the times you relax, making it better to improve quality of sleep.
There are numerous studies talking about how sleep deprivation can be incredibly bad for productivity in the workplace. In many cases, could even be detrimental to a job. But have you ever noticed that when after a really good work out you feel really tired and sleep better? Studies show that long-term moderate aerobic exercise shows significant improvements in sleep, quality of life and mood in individuals with chronic primary insomnia. After all, this means long term exercise can improve the your sleep quality and even your quality of life (quantitatively anyway!).Talk about how a simple thing can improve your health!
Revamp your creative juices with exercise.
When you еxеrсiѕе regularly, studies show that a brainstorming session can be fruitful up to two hours after a workout session and especially in outdoor exercise. It’s an inexpensive and effective way to boost your creativity, which can be an incredible asset to your company. Go for that walk during lunch if you can- you may surprise yourself when you return to the office to solve a problem!

What to do now?
With understanding the benefits of exercise, even with job success, now all that’s left is how much exercise do you need? The NIH recommends adults should do a minimum of 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity a week. That means at least 30 minutes 5 days a week! Remember if even that small change can make a significant difference to your physical and mental worth- take care of yourself!
